Prevent shadow IT and regain control of your infrastructure

  • March 25, 2014
  • Webinar

Some of your internal users have bypassed IT for infrastructure requests. They’ve gone directly to public clouds to fulfill their needs faster. This shadow IT movement typically translates into unbudgeted monthly or annual expenses, and security and operational issues.

Fulfill infrastructure requests faster

Red Hat® CloudForms helps you quickly complete infrastructure requests so users don’t need to go outside the organization. CloudForms also:

  • Puts you in control of how public cloud resources are used.
  • Sets limits and policies around usage, monitoring, and tracking usage for chargeback and showback.
  • Provides an approval workflow for public cloud requests.

In this webinar, learn how to:

  • Manage and control public cloud usage with policies, quotas, role-based access controls, approval workflow, tracking and more.
  • Manage your private and public cloud usage from 1 centralized management platform, bringing consistency and a deep feature set to multiple infrastructure platforms (VMware, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, OpenStack®, and Amazon).
  • Use public cloudbursting with policies you define to supplement your infrastructure and increase business agility.
